Travelling to Kaiteriteri PART 3

tramping is when you have a very long walk and I mean long.

we caught a boat to bark bay and back.
I wasn’t actually asleep I was just faking it.

When we got to our campsite we had showers it was 50 cents if you wanted a 3 minute shower if you put in two it’s a 6 minute shower I went with jordan in number one, number one is the biggest shower out of all the showers when we went back we did what we would normally do.

While we were waiting Nate said who wants to go to the beach all of us did so while we were there we were having so much fun we were swimming, jumping off the pontoon and drawing on the sand and people were jumping off the bridge! that leads to a lazy river! then it leads to the ocean!

we got to our campsite we had showers I went with jordan in number one again.

After I got changed there was an amazing race that we were doing, it was just our camp so we got into our teams and he said go!!! I can’t really tell you it but I can tell you my favourite part it was when we had to do press ups, well I was hanging out with Hanarima. she is very cute and she likes playing with the sand and she’s a girl.

Roller coaster

I’ve never been more terrified, than when I stood looking up at the monstrosity. Roller coasters are truly my worst nightmare, I couldn’t believe I was here. This was awful.

Whoosh, the cars sped past me, filled with screaming people. I felt as if I might faint from nervousness. “There are butterflies in my tummy” I said quietly.

Roaring and soaring through the sky we tumbled and twisted. Closing my eyes, I wished over and over again that the ride would soon end. Whose dumb idea was this?

We read a book about unicycling - called Just one wheel. We learnt about unicycles and how to fall off. It was really hard.

Lost in the forest

In the dark creepy forest there was a house, it was quite big the owners of the house had  2 lovely children 1 was named Zac he was a playful and loving kid and his younger sister's name was sarah all there parents were telling Zac ( in an angry voice) “Go do your chores”!!.

Zac was sick and tired of living in the same old house, He hated it. That exact night, zac packed all his stuff that he needed and disappeared into the deep scary dark forest with dead animals in it.

One day when Zac’s parents woke up, they were telling everyone to wake up for baby poo’s rock ( it’s a bible study) when sarah was in the room zac’s dad was calling out the names they went through all the names then the father called out Zac.

It was quiet, suddenly Sarah ran to get Zac, when she came back, the whole family panicked for a moment Sarah wanted to have her brother back so she sets off for the journey. While Zac heads on he was very thirsty, so he searched and searched everywhere, then sat down.

In his sight behind a bush he finally saw aaaaaaaa swamp he did mind but at least he found water, while he was drinking he saw a ripple, Zac was frightened so he got out his sniper and waited and waited, suddenly bursting out, of the binoculo he saw a large crocodile!!!! pouncing out, the crocodile grabbed his foot, Zac was screaming for “help!!!!!!!”.

while his parents were in bed, they started to worry about Zac and Sarah. They recognised what they were doing, but there parents couldn't do anything about it. They prayed to help their son and daughter, when they had an idea to build a light tower so that Zac and Sarah can get home safely.

while Sarah was tracking down Zac she had heard the screams. she ran closer and closer until she reached a swamp, she sat down at the edge of the swamp while she was waiting, she saw a hand peeking out of the water “hu” she dived in the creepy swamp, “huu” she wondered. She saw the hand but this time she knew who it was it was Zac she brought him in and made a fire to keep warm, also she set up the mattresses and blankets then Zac woke up.

Zac was wondering where he was and why was he in a bed, he saw his sister and said “what are you doing here” she looked at him and said “saving your life but i”m hunting for food now so have some rest, i'll be back soon” when Sarah came back she caught 2 big fat pigs and a couple of lions.

Zac was amazed by his little sister doing all this work for him that night Zac was feeling better he asked if he could help Sarah said “you can help me by getting the wood cutter and cut down branches Zac did a good job, after a while Zac was wondering what they doing, he asked Sarah, Sarah said we're making a hut around us to keep us safe.

The next morning Zac woke up and prepared breakfast, he caught 4 eggs, 2 pigs and 2 duck’s. Sarah had woken up by the smell, she smelt something delicious, once she opened her eyes she was so surprised,   that she saw her favourite breakfast poached eggs she ate it all up in one minute.

While they were walking home they were talking of how much fun they had together. While they were walking, they saw a light, then they saw home. They ran as fast as they could, their parents were so happy of having them back.

Zac’s mum and dad were saying “Sorry son for going to be disrespectful to you” “I forgive you, Zac said and Zac’s parents said a thank you to Sarah for saving Zac’s life from the scary crocodile! Zac was very pleased to hear that Sarah had saved him.

The crowd gathers around the proud flagpole to celebrate our nation. The sea of people look out at the majestic view, where the islands dot the harbour. Under the windy flags, the kapa haka group do an amazing performance.

Travelling to Kaiteriteri PART 2!

...We were heading to the South Island!

Every time, we would always stop at Rodney’s and Kirsten's house in Wellington for a little rest.

The next morning, we always played in Harry’s room. Harry is Rodney and Kirsten’s son. He is pretty crack up and sometimes, he is serious, well sometimes. Whenever we go to Harry’s house we played a cool shooting car game - it is appropriate by the way.

We cross on the ferry at 2am in the morning from Wellington to Picton, South Island!

So the next morning we are back in the car and like after 3 or 2 hours, we're finally on the ferry.
We always go on the Bluebridge ferry. While we were on the boat there was a beautiful view and after like 2 hours we’re finally at the South Island! When we were in the car and we kept on stopping and heading on, like we always.

Finally we’re at Kaiteriteri! We were 2nd out of everyone! While we were setting up the tents some more friends arrived, and helped us. Well when everyone arrived we were all were like saying hi of course and stuff. There were 2 new kids the younger one’s name was Zion. The oldest was Ausdan and he loved playing games.

While I was sitting in the tent, I was playing rat-a-tat-cat which was a card game. It is very fun. Afterwards I went into my mum and dad’s tent and watched some movies on my ipod nano. I was watching the "A Team". It is a very cool and funny movie. One of my favourite parts was taken from Braveheart where Murdock says [in a Scottish accent] "What would you give for one chance to come back here and tell our enemies that they may take our lives, but they’ll never take our freedom!!!!!!"

After watching the A Team it was dinner time and we always had delicious food. Well after eating, Jonte my cousin and Noah my brother came back and said we're going eel hunting and I said “Can I come?" and they said “Yes”.
Then we went and we saw some other people when they caught one then they put it just on the ground it was like a snake, a tiny snake. Uncle Paul stabbed it and then put it back in the pond.

The next morning Uncle Paul said "Who wants to go fishing?" and he always picked the same people. It was Jordan ,Jonte and Noah and they took ages just to come back but then we had to go tramping!

Traveling to Kaiteriteri PART 1

While we were packing, my family was getting ready for a holiday at Kaiteriteri. We were all packed and not ready to go, so we stayed up and worked. When my family and I were ready, we were told to go straight to bed, because we were leaving first thing in the morning. Today it was the 26th of December. On the 27th we were leaving so when I woke up, our family gathered at the table and prayed. Every time we travel we’d first pray to keep us safe while we're driving.

When we were driving, Noah was sleeping but everyone else was awake.
This might be a little sad for you but it was crackup for us. My mum was driving at night time and all these bugs are hitting the windscreen but then my mum turns and she recognised that she ran over a whole family of ducks crossing the road - even the baby ones!!!!
All of us were cracking up because we thought it was funny, But my mum thought that it was sad.  
Then jordan says “Mum, you're going to the dark side”, then Levi said “Mum you're going to the dark side” and I said “Mum you're going to the DUCK side”.

So, we’re still in the car, in Ohakune (which is near the snow mountain) and we’re all awake, including Noah. Then we stop at a motel when we’re all inside, Dad said to go look for the opossum in the tree. It was staring straight at us, but then we headed back and went to bed.

The next morning while we’re in the car we take a few stops and have a drink and some food.
When we came past an army museum in Waiouru, everyone says “woooooooooh!”
Everyone looked to the left, and outside the museum were some real tanks!!!!!!! and real guns!!!!!!! Mum said that we should check it out and then we all go to one tank and on it, it said ,that it could squash a person.
[if you look at the photos you will see us on the tank.]

It would take us 8 hours just to get to the ferry from Auckland. By the way, we were heading to the South Island.

Tune in and check out what happens next… Travelling to Kaiteriteri PART 2!
